Zack Ryder has been a topic of much debate over the past few months.
After receiving his singles push with the Internet wrestling community in his corner, we saw him claim his first WWE singles gold, defeating Dolph Ziggler for the United States Championship.
Now things don't look so great for the Internet Champion, and Woo Woo Woo we know it.
After losing the U.S Title, Ryder has been kicked in the groin by Eve, beat up by Kane in a pre-show match, been relegated to WWE Superstars, and is set to be thrown to the wolves in a feud with Damien Sandow on SmackDown.
The 'Z! True Long Island Story' has also hugely suffered in both quality and views since it's move to the WWE Fan Nation YouTube channel. The thing that made Ryder a star is no longer his friend, and now only seems to anger WWE as he tries to speak his mind, only to have it edited into a much tamer version.
So how do you solve such a sudden decline?
The first thing to save the Ryder Revolution would be to get off WWE Fan Nation as quickly as possible, or to at least make some very big changes to the show. Since the move, it seems Ryder has had his personality tamed and been forced to fit the mold WWE make him fit.
However, another way he could gather hits is by using "...Long Island Story" on the WWE's own channel, but developing his character as a heel. The animosity in Ryder's character seems to be building as he is continually held back, and as the "We want Ryder" chants disappear, this would be a good time for him to turn on the fans and make himself interesting again.
With the main shows looking fairly crowded with talent right now, there are very few spots for Ryder. To fix this there seems like an obvious choice.
With the relaunch of NXT, the Internet based program appears more cutting edge and a perfect breeding ground for new talent. But to get the show in the mind of the WWE fans, why not have the Internet Champion appear on the show, and even defend his Internet Championship?
In similar style to the TNA Television title being defended on weekly broadcasts, this title could be defended weekly on the Internet stream and would act as a huge boost to both Zack Ryder and NXT.
